Clubs in the Championship could make permanent bids, as well as loan offers, for Charlie Cresswell, with The Athletic reporting that Leeds United are planning to recall the defender from his time at Millwall.

Cresswell has had a difficult spell at The Den. His form has been inconsistent. And he has been left on the bench for the last four Championship games for Gary Rowett’s men.

It is a real shame for the 20-year-old. He has been really impressive whenever he has got a chance for Leeds. And there are hopes that he has an incredibly bright future ahead of him.

Leeds could receive permanent bids for Charlie Cresswell

Unsurprisingly, it seems that Leeds have changed their plans for Cresswell. According to The Athletic, the Whites are working on recalling him from his loan at Millwall.

A clause in the deal that would have allowed Leeds to cancel the loan has now expired. But they are still working on agreeing an exit with Millwall due to the amount of interest from elsewhere.

And it would appear that loan bids may not be the only offers Leeds have to respond to.

The Athletic suggests that clubs in the Championship are considering both loan and permanent bids for Cresswell this month. It is not clear whether Leeds would have any interest in actually selling him.

Cresswell is down the pecking order at Elland Road. The likes of Diego Llorente, Robin Koch, Liam Cooper and Max Wober are all internationals. And Pascal Struijk will join them sooner or later.

However, it would be almost unforgivable if the ‘incredible‘ youngster was sold. He did not look out of place whenever he got a chance in the first-team.

Surely, Victor Orta will not allow a permanent exit to happen. Leeds made the controversial call to hand Llorente a new contract recently.

If they follow that by letting Cresswell go permanently, the fans will be furious.
